I have a questions about Ancients storyline for old Inferno.
I know there is unofficial Ancients pack/story in making, but because it is behind both Nostos and INF:A I do not expect the release before 2038, so I think revealing this part will not spoil anyting.
What was the planned Ancients story in Inferno? I assume some part of Ancients empire managed to survive/evacuate/cut away behind one of their Knossos and Shivans either didn't knew this or didn't know how to operate Knossos device.
In Ancients Juggernaut descriptions there was mention that Ancient-Shivan battles were spotted by GTVA, so I guess that Knossos was in Shivan territory and GTVA opened it after defeat for Gigas and push into Shivan space.
Were Ancients intended to be hostile or friendly towards GTVA? Were they intended to ally with GTVA in the end?
What was their relative power comparing to GTVA? From Tech entries description it was mentioned they have several Juggernauts and several Super Carriers, which put them slightly ahead of entire GTVA in terms of raw firepower. However for several thousand years since Ancient-Shivan war this seems quite small. Maybe the region they were hiding was small and limited resources?
Also in the very old Inferno Webpage there was tech entry in picture of another race that was "as old and as powerful as Shivans" - what was their story and purpose in old Inferno? Were they cooperating with Shivans, their masters, or some kind of competitors like Brahmans from Blue Planet?
